thanks to Promotion Events (and their predecessor), the annual Fremont 5K Fun Run has been the "RunningBarefoot Run of the Month" for Seattle since 2003. They provide us a table to (1) promote running barefoot, (2) display/post recent news articles featuring running barefoot, and (3) offer RunningBarefoot.org goods (shirts, bumper stickers, etc.).
We offer free running barefoot tips and probably should charge a dollar every time someone asks to see our soles. Many interested runners show up from invitations we liberally issue during our participation in various other area events (e.g. Resolution Run and Splash, Valentine 5K, St. Pat's Dash, Mercer Island Half Marathon, Tacoma City Marathon etc.).
We usually have 2-3 barefoot runners and are hoping for 2X that this year from as far away as Lee's Summit, MO (Barefoot Rick) and Vancouver, Washington down by Portland (Barefoot Ryan)..
please join us if possible and have your Seattle area running friends join us too.

Regarding my 200th marathon in 8:16:36.6 at age 73 compared to Ed Whitlock’s 2:54:48 at age 73 and my first one at 3:52:15 at age 34, "That was a good day. It was never a struggle, . . . . almost like walking"
Six happy pairs of bare feet from last night's (Friday - 6/11/20) Fremont 5K annually designated as the RunningBarefoot Run of the Month even since the RD saw me running the 5K route sans shoes
some ten years ago. A lot of Vibram Five Fingers are planning on shedding them too for next year.
